What permanent treatment do u want for? The uric acid or the knee & Joint pains. Try to understand that both may not be linked as u feel. As the cause of knee and joint pains are many and not only uric acid.

High serum uric acid puts a person at increaded risk for gout and kidney stones. Follow a high fibre diet. Spinach, celery, oats are good sources of fibre. Fruits and vegetables such as red bell peppers, tomatoes, brocolli are rich in antioxidents n should b made a part of diet. Limit poultry, meat and fish as they r rich in purine which increases uric acid levels.

Increased uric acid is due to deficiency of an e enzyme in the body that helps in elimination of uric acid. In its absence uric acid will rise. The treatment lies in diet control for high proteins and if not controlled will diet medications lifelong is the only treatment in allopathy.
